What is Progesterone?
Progesterone is a naturally produced hormone, that plays an important role in the menstrual cycle, fertility and pregnancy. It has several important functions, including helping to prepare the uterus for embryo implantation and pregnancy. Progesterone levels increase after ovulation every month, but if ovulation does not occur, then Progesterone levels remain low.
The Better2Know Your Body Progesterone home test looks for the amount of Progesterone in your blood. For women who are planning to become pregnant, it is essential that ovulation occurs every month and an egg is released. A Better2Know Progesterone home test performed on blood taken at day 21 of the menstrual cycle will identify whether ovulation has occurred.
For women with heavy, absent, irregular or painful periods, understanding the Progesterone level can help to understand whether fertility is likely to be affected or whether this could be the start of the lead up to the menopause, or some other reason.
Why should I consider a Progesterone test?
This test is ideal for anyone wishing to establish the level of Progesterone in their blood. It is especially useful for women planning a pregnancy or who have been trying to conceive without success. The Better2Know Your Body Progesterone home test is also suitable for women trying to understand the reason for their abnormal menstrual cycles.
What is the Better2Know Your Body home testing process?
The Better2Know Your Body Progesterone home test will identify the amount of Progesterone present in your blood. This confidential test uses a single blood sample, which is taken using a finger prick lancet. Your discreet home testing kit will contain a gold-topped tube for blood collection, a pathology form, three lancets, a prepaid envelope and wipes. In addition, a member of our health advisory team will also email you with instructions on how to safely collect your sample. Once you have completed your test, place your blood sample in the envelope provided and send it to our CPA accredited laboratory where it will be analysed swiftly and efficiently.

Your Patient Services Manager, Louise Wright, will email you your login details to access your results, a confirmation your kit has been dispatched and finally when all your results are ready.
